How to buy Compound in Canada
Is COMP a good investment in Canada?
The Compound protocol is a decentralized lending and borrowing platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Compound allows users to lend and borrow a variety of different cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum and stable coins, using smart contracts. Both sides of the transaction, the lender and the borrower, who operate on this platform, due to its decentralized nature, only deal with the compound platform and there is no middleman involved. The interest rates on loans and transactions are determined by supply and demand, with borrowers earning interest on their deposited assets and lenders earning interest on the assets they lend out. The COMP token is used to govern the protocol and gives token holders the ability to vote on changes to the Compound protocol. Additionally, users who supply assets to the protocol are rewarded with COMP tokens as interest. Due to the activity of this currency on the blockchain, all information related to transactions are recorded and published in a completely transparent manner; Therefore, the possibility of fraud and abuse is reduced. Also, its decentralized nature increases its liquidity.
In a nutshell, Compound simply works like a decentralized bank and allows users to deposit and receive interest. However, unlike traditional banks that sometimes have negative interest or may have control over deposits, the blockchain platform of Compound does not allow any person or organization to manage and access users' assets.
